Druse with spheroidal aggregates of very well defined trapezohedral Spessartine crystals. On a feldspar matrix, they are between translucent and transparent, very bright and have a very intense and uniform orange color. Relatively common just a few years ago, this kind of Spessartine is quickly disappearing from the mineral market.Tongbei, Yunxiao, Zhangzhou, Fujian, ChinaSpecimen size: 6.2 × 5.5 × 2.3 cm = 2.4” × 2.2” × 0.9”Main crystal size: 0.3 × 0.3 cm = 0.1” × 0.1”ME36Z9
